A Bushel and a Peck – PP #313 & SIP #66


Today’s project is truly off the beaten path for me in several aspects.  Here’s why….the Paper Players’ challenge called for a “taste of Fall” and the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge was “anything but a card”.  I was a little hard pressed for “edible” fall stamps and I usually don’t post many 3D projects but I really wanted to rise to these challenges.

I recently purchased a few Fall stamp sets from Lawn Fawn and one of them was Thanks a Bushel along with the coordinating dies.  This set is simply adorable….


I love this little basket of apples.  The basket was stamped on a piece of patterned paper and pieced onto the stamped images.  The apples are colored with markers and a blender pen.  The doilie makes such a cute little backdrop for the apples.


Here’s a photo of the apple crate from the back.  I used kraft paper cut at 8″ x 3″ then scored at 2 1/2″ on each side.  The retired word punch cut the handles on each side.  Cut 4 strips at 1″ x 4″ and score at 1/2″ on each side then affix with Tear & Tape adhesive.


As soon as I saw these Hershey’s Carmel Apples at the drug store, I knew I wanted to make an apple crate for them!  I will need to make a few more of these for some special people this Fall!

Hope you are enjoying your first “taste” of Fall today!
